The SpaceI've traveled to almost 50 countries and Los Angeles is my favorite place to live: you are going to love your stay in our beautiful City of Angels!!
Whether you are a busy professional who wants to escape the monotonous/impersonal/loud hotels, or if you are someone visiting Los Angeles for a few days of fun & enjoyment, this is the place for you!!
In my beautiful, cozy, quiet, smoke-free 2bedroom-2bath 1100sqf home, with a huge 5000sqf zen backyard (with coy pond and organic fruit trees), and beautiful Italian decor, you will have your own:
Fully furnished private room (the one that's pictured here with the light grey walls, with a map of the world on the wall, and the teal furniture) + your own private bathroom (the green one), + your own private entrance in/out the house so you can come/go at your own rhythm and privacy anytime you like, peacefully quiet.
The modern private full bath is supplied with plenty of towels, bathrobe and toiletries like shampoo and conditioner, shower gel & other toiletries you might have forgotten, hair dryer, iron and ironing board provided; your comfortable bedroom comes with clean linens, sheets and blankets, cozy posture-pedic pillows, and a microwave.

We are in North Sherman Oaks
As your hostess, I will make sure you have full directions to where you need to go and even happy to make suggestions of itinerary of activities for our beautiful City of Angels. I love love LOVE Los Angeles, have lived here 20 years now and will be more than happy to make recommendations for any type dining or activities...whether it be your night-life or yoga-life. I am a professional speaker (you can find my TEDxTalks online) and business coach, using hypnotherapy as a key modality ~ I make my own schedule and often work from home, so I ask that we keep the home quiet and peaceful.
I am 44 and I have an 11 years old GoldenDoodle, a trained service animal who is the most peaceful and happy love bug! His name is Wellington, he is the star of a short film, he spends most of his days napping in my office with me, he's SUPER sweet, and raaarely barks. No worries if you have allergies as his breed is hypoallergenic and he will NOT be going into your room (unless you ask him to come play with you).
I speak 5 languages (Italian, French, German, Spanish and, yes, English); I was born and raised in Europe and I'd be happy to help with translating recommendations, if English is not your first language.
We really hope you will come join us for a few days, as friends and other professionals like you who have stayed with us, either for business or pleasure, have always enjoyed the peacefulness of our home, its coziness and comfort in the midst of being so conveniently located close to everything we love in Los Angeles :)
For any questions, do not hesitate to reach out via the Airbnb messenger App :)
We look forward to giving you a home away from home. Guest AccessYou will have your own room + your own private bathroom + your own private entrance, with a security key.
There is a fully stocked kitchen in the apartment (ask me about which cookware to use, so you do not accidentally damage the expensive one). Use the kitchen as if it were your own, but please tidy up afterwards. The kitchen is shared. There is a microwave in your room.
There is a laundry area with washer and drier just outside your room, free to use after 6pm. Kindly ask me first. One load per stay.
You can also rent a car GPS for $3/day if you need one. Interaction with GuestsI live & work in the house. You will have privacy at all times, but you can always knock on my door if you need anything.

Getting AroundPublic transportation in Los Angeles is *not* fantastic, so best to rent a car for $20..25/day (I recommend you pre-book it ahead of time on (URL HIDDEN) for the best rates)
From LAX, aside from renting a car there, I recommend booking with (URL HIDDEN) ~ it's about $32 one-way from LAX to my house: you take it at the arrival section of LAX, give them my address, and they will bring you straight to my door (in about 25mins without traffic). They accept credit-card payments, and no reservation is necessary as they do a continuous loop at LAX arrivals. Other Things to NotePlease let me know your flight landing time with your booking so that I can make arrangements to either welcome you personally, or coordinate with my meetings that day and leave you a key in an envelope with your name on it (which will be on the front porch of the house) so you can make yourself comfortable, until I get home to greet you :)
I look forward to making this a great, cozy and relaxing stay with Wellington and I!!
